'm on the ballot, will be on the ballot in all 50 states. steve, right now we're on the ballot in 47 states and the district of columbia. we're litigated in the other three. so although there are other third-party candidates running this cycle, none of them are going to come close to what i just said. that said, um, where's the difference between the two? i'm going to argue that we should not bomb iran, that we should get out of afghanistan tomorrow, bring the troops home, that marriage equality is a constitutionally-guaranteed right. let's end the drug war, let's legalize marijuana now. i would have never signed the national defense authorization act allowing for you and i as u.s. citizens to be arrested and detained without being charged. i think that's why we've fought wars. i would have never signed the patriot act. i think the homeland security's incredibly redundant. tsa should not be the federal government, it should be airports, airlines, states, knew mispalties -- municipalities. balance the federal budget now. i think we all recognize that what we're doing is not sustainable. i th
in the media. if steve cross had a follow-up to that, they never aired it. >> that's right, they never follow up with the president. the fundamental flaw in the media's thinking as exhibited, when the president says well, the organizing principle is islam, mr. president, it's not just islam, it's the extremist wing of islam and name me a country other than indonesia and maybe turkey though we don't know exactly where that's going where this fundamentalist islam has been nonviolent, has promoted equality of women or any other things. this is a fool's errand and the editorials in the newspapers miss this because they don't have a religious perspective. >> judy, the death, the assassination of our ambassador, of two former seals, of the state department employee, bumps in the road. where was the criticism over that comment? >> i think what the president was talking about was the broader context of the wave of change, and that in the wave of change, there are going to be bumps on the road. he -- i do not think that he meant to suggest an and most people did not interpret it to mean the death of f
david axelrod said, we don't need a president who shoots first and aims later. >> steve centanni, strong words on the show this is morning. >> reporter: you bet. >> eric: how will the handling of the attack effect the race for the white house? 43% of likely voters disapprove of the president's handling of the situation so far and 39% approve. will this put new focus on the foreign policy of the administration. >> brad and joe, good to see you here. >> good to be with you, eric. >> eric: brad, how do you think this will play into the campaign? >> i think, eric, it gets stranger and stranger each day. lives are being exposed. coverups are being exposed and frankly, it's clear to me that this didn't fit the political narrative that the white house wanted to have the american people believe. that is that osama bin laden is dead and al qaeda has been destroyed. osama may be dead, errickic, but al qaeda is killing american personnel and destroying american property. there is a heck of a lot of answers that have to be forthcoming, like why hasn't the fbi been able to get in there. how is it tha

ago today, steve jobs, the visionary cofounder of apple, died at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. the company remains an industry powerhouse despite the loss of their leader. >>> now on to our top story tonight. good news on the jobs front. according to the household survey, 700, i'm sorry, 873,000 people found a job last night. last month. that brought the unemployment rate down to 7.8% for the first time in 3 1/2 years. the employers survey though reported a very different number, only 114,000 people found a job. that means, 759,000 people found a job but they aren't showing up on the payroll. how is that possible? with me to sort it all out, phil angelides, former california treasurer and campaign surrogate for president obama. thank you so much for coming on the show tonight. >> a pleasure. melissa: a lot of people have spent the day trying to reconcile these two numbers. of course these surveys are done very differently. the household people call people at home, say are you looking, are you working? employer survey they grow to the employers look at pe
. there are lots of theories about what triggered the price rise. as steve kroft reported in 2009, many people believe it had more to do with wall street speculation than with oil companies. >> to understand what happened to the price of oil, you first have to understand the way it's traded. for years, it's been bought and sold on something called the commodities futures market. here at the new york mercantile exchange, it's traded alongside cotton and coffee, copper and steel by brokers who buy and sell contracts to deliver those goods at a certain price at some date in the future. it was created so that farmers could gauge what their unharvested crops would be worth months in advance, so that factories could lock in the best price for raw materials and airlines could manage their fuel costs. but in late 2007, that market started to behave erratically. and when oil doubled to more than $147 a barrel, no one was more suspicious than dan gilligan. >> we have to make sure that the futures market is an honest market. >> as the president of the petroleum marketers association, he represents more t

does that do to the republican party's politics on this issue? joining us now, steve carknacky, the co-host of msnbc's the cycle and a senior writer at salon.com. thanks for being here. >> happy to be here. >> there were a ton of these gay marriage bans on the ballot in 2004 and the common wisdom was republicans thought it would drive up turnout and help george w. bush get elected by bringing out conservatives who might not like him but who really hated gay people. did that turn out to be the case in '04? >> there is all sorts of speculation about that. you can certainly match up. it was a year in which turnout went up surprisingly overall and it was sort of a base election where the base of each party was activated. i've never seen a definitive study that said yes we can clearly link the x number of voters in ohio or whatever would have stayed home if not for this being on the ballot. you can find a correlation between people who voted against it in a place like ohio and who voted for george w. bush but on a lot of other issues, too. >> sort of a mixed bag. the common wisdom doesn't m

to these issues? potentially. you know, steve, i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of americans. i think they consider themselves fiscally responsible and socially respecting. reachingacc -- socially accepting. i am in that broad brush category myself. how does that equate to all the issues that we face today? i do not think either party -- i don't think democrats are good on civil liberties. i don't think republicans are good at dollars and cents. when it comes to civil liberties and being republican, it is not happening at all. host: you might remember john anderson won 6.6% of the national vote. ralph nader has won several times. you have been called the original tea party candidate. i want to play a little bit of tape with ross perot. we will show this interview tonight at 9:00 p.m. he reflects on the tea party movement. let's take a listen.
